to bush and obama's secretary of defense bob gates who said this: "it seems to me that trying to speak with one voice, one american voice, has become a quaint thing of the past. i regret that enormously. and so do i. there's nothing more frightening to our enemy than a strong, united voice. it's incumbent upon his political rivals to encourage him privately, not provide political broadsides in public. there's going to be a lot of time to do that during the political campaigns but for now washington leaders should measure their words a bit more carefully because, richard, not on is the whole world watching, vladimir putin is watching. do you agree with secretary gates and myself that you can disagree with the president of the united states, the commander in chief without going out making extreme political broadsides? >> absolutely. what makes it more relevant here, i may be in a minority, but i don't think vladimir putin had in his closet a 16-point plan for ukraine. i think he's improvising and making it up as he's going along, looking for opportunities, playing off what it is we say a
out of the loop on some of these decisions. it's not going a defense she is going to use. her plan is to stick with president obama, but it makes it hard for her to charter her own course as she heads out on this campaign. we have seen ian senator john mccain who you know is very supportive of her in the past and joked about her and said she was totally wrong about this. >> julie, this shows the long march to entering the race for hillary clinton, the longer this drags out, the more hits she is going to take. whatever issue of the day comes up, it's a link somehow to hillary clinton. >> absolutely. especially if it's something that happened on foreign policy when she was secretary of state. i mean, that red reset button moment we are going to see played over and over again. i actually am interested to hear from her on what she was thinking at that time and whether she thinks that was the right policy given what we have seen now. >> and gene robinson, there are going to be a lot of issues that she is going to be exposed on if she runs moving forward and a lot of people think she is
cann, ellsbury and beltran, that's a tremendous load of offense. there's questions about the infield defense but it's going to come down to tanaka being able to adjust to the united states. how sabathia gets stronger having lost 40 or 50 pounds and whether he can get back to what he was two or three years ago and i think roberts is going to be terrific closing. it allful it's awfully hard following that act named rivera. >> and where does tanaka fit following with hideo nomo and some that have not worked out for teams. >> he's probably a notch below yu darvish. he hasn't spiched very well on less than six days' rest. when he starts to throw 93, 94 miles an hour his control has been a problem. how he adjusts to the strike zone of the united states and the hitters in the american league east is something no one in the yankees really knows. he'll be good and he'll give them innings. how great remains to be seen. >> there's been one significant rule change over the winter and that's to try to prevent collisions at the plate, bust are posey-type injuries, things like that. as the rule plays out t
to switch to a different topic which is afghanistan. the native defense ministers are getting ready for a complete withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of the year. there a lot of discussion if we continue on that path, a lot of the progress that has been made in afghanistan is not sustainable. what do you think we are going to see over the course of the next nine months as we head towards the zero option as some people call it in afghanistan? >> i think there is the real danger of a crisis in that relations with afghanistan. but, ultimately, it's their country and they have to think of its future. we have made a commitment with which we have stuck for more than ten years now, trying to create a more modern afghanistan. i feel we were a little ambitious in trying that. it might have been wise just to stick to the military operation and see some sort of negotiated outcome could be reached earlier. but we are where we are. i think the after gpeople from afghanistan are not ready to figure out the long-range relationship with us. we might be better off leaving sooner rather than late
